Buccaneers Training Camp Day Three Recap: Darrelle Revis participates in team drills

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Everything you need to know about the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' third day of training camp. Who stood out and who flunked the test?


  • Carl Nicks participated early on, but were pulled from the field halfway through practice, per Rick Brown. The Bucs are still easing them back from their injuries.
  • Nose tackle Gary Gibson was on the sidelines, per Rick Brown. Gibson seemed to injure himself on the first scrimmage play yesterday, but came back in later that same day. Akeem Spence took his snaps as the starting nose tackle.
  • Darrelle Revis got some more practice time, going up against Vincent Jackson at least twice, with a resulting 40-yard catch per Roy Cummings. Revis won the next matchup, though (again per Cummings). He even noted that Revis even got on the field in a seven-on-seven walkthrough, where he participated through the end of practice.
  • Revis was intense and physical, even in the walkthrough portion. He jammed Vincent Jackson in press coverage, and JoeBucsFan loves his intensity.
  • Mason Foster came up limping and grabbing his right hamstring, per JoeBucsFan. We'll have to wait to see if it's anything serious.

Position battles and starters

Other Practice Notes

  • The quarterbacks were working on rollouts, according to Roy Cummings. Perhaps the Bucs are trying to get Josh Freeman to scramble and break contain a little more often.
  • After Warren Sapp showed up yesterday, Ronde Barber gave it a try today as part of his new TV job.
  • The defense seemed to be dominating the offense today, with numerous pass breakups and interceptions across the board. It seems the secondary had a good day, with Johnthan Banks really standing out.
  • JoeBucsFan called Mike Williams the best player in training camp so far. That's good to hear after the Bucs gave him a massive contract this offseason.
